As a proud member of the Mercedes Tiger Band color guard and drill team, a lifetime goal for me would be to join a marching band and/or college dance team. Coming into high school I never thought my passion would be to be performing in front of hundreds of people every Friday Night for four years. It has become my passion and it brings me much joy to perform and have the time of my life on that football field. I have had an amazing four years participating in many extracurricular activities but I have found that my biggest passion is colorguard. I have grown to love the sport.
I truly believed that I already lost. Regardless, I went into the audition room, did my absolute best, and came out searching for a way to console myself. My mom took me out to eat afterwards, but instead of conversing I incessantly checked my phone every other minute for the results. Nearly an hour later, just after I arrived home, I checked the results and the trombones who made it were posted; there my name stood listed as the third best trombone. Personally, I am not the type to get excited over positive results, but this occasion was remarkably unique.
When a person hears the word obstacle, high school cheerleading rarely would come to mind. For me that’s all that I think of. My last season of high school cheerleading, in a nutshell, was short and bitter. Life threw injuries to all members of my stunt group, girls were caddy and spread rumors, but most importantly, I didn 't have fun. Around the beginning of November, I got a concussion.
I had no idea what to do, all the girls on the team had turned against me, and I was getting to the point of defeat by this pointless drama. Homecoming night came along and I was in her group. My parents had been a little cold to her parents during pictures, so as we got to the dance I got a call from my sister that this girl 's mom had told my parents that I had sent texts threatening her, and they had the texts and were going to send them to my parents. Completely astonished I quickly denied it, and confronted the girl asking her if I had done that, and she said, “no I do not remember that.” After that I felt a little at ease, but her mom was adamant about these texts. Sunday came along and the mom texted again saying the texts were deleted but they were going to recover them using an app they had gotten.
On June 17, the second day of vacation, Jill persuades Ana to reduce her calories to 1,200 per day with her. Once she started she couldn’t stop. She thought what she was doing was an achievement because of her great running times but she was actually wrecking her body. On September 30 Ana collapsed during her track meet although that didn’t seem to stop her. When Ana’s friend Vanessa became
My body filled with red patches that were extremely itchy. One day my mom informed me that I had a phone call, I answered, and who else could it be but Jamyra. I was so happy to hear her voice almost an entire week without speaking (that was unusual for us). She was sobbing, apologizing for accusing me of the horrible untrue rumors she heard about me. I forgave her, telling her about the horrible rash that I had attracted from camp.
I was exactly what I wanted as a child: winning class president two years in a row, playing lead in a major sixth grade play, and making plenty of friends. My trick was simply to avoid talking about religion.
Lucy ran into her house crying her mom wondered what happened so she ran after her. She told her mom that her and Rachel had gotten into a fight and that they would be ok. Later that night Rachel called because they were partners for the time capsule assignment and neither of them apologized. Lucy’s mom and Rachel’s mom called each other to figure out what had happened. Both the girls just said it was a minor thing and not to worry about it. Their moms didn 't agree to that statement and made them apologize to each other.
Eventually I started tearing the entire apartment apart when she 'd leave, I knocked over shelves and broke dishes, anything and everything I could throw or knock over was. Then I would panic and rush to fix everything before she got home, I always got it straightened back up. Everything seemed to be going downhill for me, my doctor put me on the highest dose of anti-depressants she could. I started shuffling through life and nothing but Phoebe brought me, even a little bit of joy. She, however didn 't feel the same about me, she started getting up earlier in the mornings, started leaving before I could even kiss her goodbye once, came home hours after her shift ended, started taking anti-depressants herself, and went straight to bed without even a 'hello ' to me.
The reason for this is almost 100 colleges in the US have gymnastics teams. Not only can you continue to do gymnastics and do what you love, you can even earn a helpful scholarship! As a result, if you go to college and get on the gymnastics team, you can make friends quickly because you have something in common with your teammates. Now if you take Simone Biles for instance, she trained so hard in gymnastics and got to go to the Olympics. Not only did she get to go to the Olympics, which is pretty dang hard to do, but she won 1st all around, floor, and vault!
People feel as if that isn 't fair- but when Kayla gets to the finish line, it then turns into a struggle. Her coach has caught her after every one of her meets, Kayla loses control and is unable to stop her legs until her body temperature lowers back to normal. Kayla has been involved in sports ever since she was little, in 2009 her life changed when she was diagnosed. Believing in herself is what made her keep going, being a motivational and inspirational runner. So how did she find out she had MS?
I never realized that years into the future I would fill their shoes, and carry the responsibility of being the person little girls looked up to. I didn’t know back then I would come the tremendously frightening and honoring understanding of how much I could influence a young person’s life. In our town there is a youth football program we have come to know as “Cadiz Biddy Football.” They start in August and play four teams two times each, then go into playoffs to see who gets to compete in the “Superbowl”. Along with the football program is a cheerleading program. Girls third through sixth grade sign up every year to cheer for the four quarters of every football game, along with doing a routine to entertain fans at halftime.
They were so excellent in the band that they were offered 3 scholarships from 3 different schools. To begin with, there’s Corey the silly one, Kendal the quite one, and Carlton the fun one. They’re in 12th grade, they love the band. They were offered scholarships from Southern University, Jackson State University, and Talladega University. So, as time went on they graduated, then it all came down to the decision of their chose.
A few hours later all of my stuff was tucked into my room, Mom and Sydney both started crying when they got ready to leave. Dad even had tears in his eyes, “I promise all of you, I’ll take good care of her. No Debbie downers allowed!” Sarah hugged mom and Sydney then Dad and Cade. We decided to take a walk around campus before it turned dark outside. While we walked Sarah and I spent that time getting to know each other.
The acquisitive Spanish explorer of the New World wanted to get as much of the gold and silver from the New World as possible. Kate arrogated herself to take on the duties of the team captain of her swim even though it was Mara’s job. Although she has her Masters degree in English, her banal speech left me with the impression she hadn’t left elementary school. The girl belabored making each strand of hair look meticulous, which caused her to almost miss the school bus because she worked on it for 3 hours. The carping teacher always found a negative to every student’s research paper even if it deserved a 100.
